Visit the History of Psychology timeline published on the American Psychological Association’s website and browse through the events flagged as “Psychology Milestone”. Identify a specific event that you think was particularly surprising. Post your selected milestone to your learning journal, along with (1) how old you were and what you were doing at the time of the milestone (if you were even alive at the time) and (2) why you found it surprising.


You can either record your efforts in your private learning journal or you can make your learning public on your blog by using the hastags #IPSY101 #historicalmoments. Using these hashtags will allow WEnotes to harvest your contribution and add them to the Course feed.
